The 17-year-old was discovered in a critical condition and despite the best efforts of paramedics she died at the scene.

A 21-year-old woman and 29-year-old man were also taken in for treatment.

Ms Gallon has been remembered by family and friends online as ‘beautiful’ and supportive friend. 

‘God claimed a beautiful souls last night, but to say goodbye kills me,’ one tribute reads.

‘The most hardest thing I’ve done so far. Beautiful I love you so much.’

‘Grateful to have known you and grateful for the support you always offered to me,’ another post reads.

‘May you rest well darling.’

The horror rollover forced the closure of the Flinders Highway in both directions until 4.30am on Tuesday morning.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating the incident.
